Why was Drag & DropZones created?

Drag & DropZone Searching was an invention I made when trying hard to come up with an easier way to do a mouse only search. The extension was first actually "just" another feature in my Web Search Pro extension, but I saw so much more potential for it to leave it at that, so I pulled it from WSPro and rewrote it a bit into a seperate extension. Not too long after it's release I started implementing the ability to assign every possible item from your context menu to a dropzone, by goal being to eventually replace the entire context menu widget.

What's next for Drag & DropZones

I am currently working on what will become Drag & DropZones 2.0, a really big update. New features will include (details still in progress):
- "Just DropZones", the ability to activate your DropZones by right clicking.
- Custom Scripts, allowing you to write your own bits of JavaScript code to be executed from a DropZone.
- Individually coloring each zone, how else are you going to recognize all those DropZones :)

Even more? Who knows....

Who is Captain Caveman?

So, my real name is Martijn Kooij but I was labeled Captain Caveman about 15 years ago by one of my mates. I started developing Mozilla Add-ons in early 2005, fell in love with it instantly, and have since then produced 10 official extensions. For a living I work at a relatively small software company "Tangram", where I am a software architect.<br/><br/><a href="">Follow me on Twitter</a>
